Re: ESPN Article- App State New Year 6 Bowl

One thing to keep in mind is that it's not the best G5 team, it's the best G5 conference champion. I agree it's still a long shot, but we just need some help with the MWC and AAC championship games. IMO as a one loss team, we're in over a 2 loss champion from any G5 conference and any 1 loss champio...

Re: JMU

I don't think JMU's admin have any desire to move to FBS. They pay lip service to the fans who desire to move up by making grand claims of pursuing FBS - if the right opportunity arrives (meaning the AAC). They know the AAC isn't expanding or back-filling (in the case of any current members leaving)...

Re: GSU at Texas State Tonight

I'm not going to draw any conclusions about a team flying to Texas for a midweek game. These long distance short week games can throw a team off.

While I'm certainly not pulling for the gnats, a tv game between a 6-1 GS team and a 5-1 App team will look good to AP voters.

Re: Officiating in a Win

Yes, they seem to always focus on the fact that we are undersized. As Analyst that are former players, they should know that it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the fight in the dog that matters. But to fair to Boiman, as the game went on, he was gushing about how fast and good our LB C...

Re: Satterfield's contract extended!!!

The one thing that would make me question any UNC-CH rumor is that Satt specifically said he would want a program that is 100% behind its Football program. UNC-CH is not that program and never will be. They would like a winning football team but, Basketball is the end-all be-all at that school and t...

Re: Kickoff chant thread, Part II

If we're looking at traditions at other schools to emulate, I suggest Texas A&M yell practice. Use the Student Yosef Club to run it and elect a Yell leader. This way it can lead to a pretty cool "new tradition" and it would be student ran instead of the "man" trying to keep the kids under control. S...

Re: UPDATE: ICE BUT NO CUPS FOR SATURDAY

I don't get the "entitlement" statement. Nobody is demanding free cups and ice. People are gladly willing to pay for it. There is clearly a demand for cups with ice. We've been down this road before and on hot days the concessions cannot maintain a sufficient supply of cold drinks throughout the gam...

Re: No game this weekend

Remember it's not just the weather at the game site. It's also the availability of resources (security, medical, emergency), too. Surely many of those will be on standby for the eastern part of the state. This I imagine has as much to do with the cancellation as anything. It's not simply game day w...

Re: Rescheduling Hypotheticals

As mentioned earlier Southern Miss has a bye on 10/6. Play Southern Miss on 10/6 - Move the Arkansas State game to 10/13. I think ESPN would allow this; however, Arkansas St may not be willing to give up an espn2 game.

Other than the above, I think we're playing an 11 game regular season.

Re: NO SOUVENIR CUPS & ICE

Biggest problem with me is no ice. On a hot gameday in the sun ice is needed. The souvenir cups are nice, but I can get over losing them. If there's that much of an issue serving them at the regular concession stands, why not have kiosks that only offer cups with ice for $2-3?

Re: Week 2 Poll Votes?

Doesn't surprise me. The Coaches poll normally views G5 teams more favorably. We didn't have any votes in the preseason AP poll, so I wasn't expecting any after a loss. We'll probably need to get to 3-1 or so before we see any votes there. As for the Coaches poll - If we can keep winning, once confe...

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions After Week #1

I want to say we only played 26 different people (I'm assuming that doesn't count special teams) when we played Michigan. We were beat up after that game. We're leaving the Penn St game in much better shape. Our FBS roster depth shows. Honestly, if you look at the Michigan game just the difference i...
